Distribution of Asian Flu Vaccine Up to Doctors DES -MOINES WV-A broad policy on distributing' Iowa's limited supply of vaccine to combat Asian fltt—.with each Individual physician being the deciding factor-had been laid down Saturday by an advisory Expect Group To Go Over 3 Election Laws By HARRISON WEBER (Iowa Daily Presa Assn. Writer) DES MOINES — The legislative committee on election practices and political influences is expected to give particular attention to three election laws. Presumable, the law governing how much can legally be spent on a campaign will take top billing. The law now provides that the candidate can expend in each election no more than half of what the office pays.....Thus, if the office paid $10,000 annually the candidate could spend $5,000 in the primary and $5,000 in the general election. Laws on absentee ballots will receive careful scrutiny and the law affecting contributions from outside the state will also get more than a passing glance. Committee members will find the 1954 campaign report filed by former U.S. Senator Guy Gillette very Interesting. It shows that in the Nov. 2 general election campaign of 1954 Gillette had receipts of $25,499 and expenditures of $22, 817. Salary of a U.S. Senator is $22,500. There were four contributions listed for $5,000 each. These large contributors were: National Dem ocratic Committee, Democratic Senate campaign committee, League for Political Education of Iowa and "from 200 workers over the United States through the Solidarity House District." The lat tor has been identified as part of the United Auto Workers organ! cation. In addition, there was a $2,500 contribution from the Stevenson Luncheon at Sioux City. Largest expenditure listed was $6,738 for stationary, postage and printing. Assessment on Utilities Most state departments are encountering difficulties because the legislature slashed appropriations The .commerce commission has decided to make an assessment on electrical transmission line hearings in order to get the department over the hump without making any cuts in its staff. committee of the State Health Department. The general concept, the committee decided after a meeting here Friday, was that the vaccine should go to persons in health and other essential services and to persons who might be in grave danger because of age or illness. Other than that the committee made no effort to lay down fast rules on what Iowans should get first call on the vaccine as it becomes available. Limited Supply Six major drug companies are engaged in a drive to turn out 80 million doses of the vaccine by Jan. 1. Iowa will get a share of it but it will not be enough to go around. The advisory committee, which was appointed by Gov! Herschel Loveless to assist the Health Department, said that in the event of epidemic conditions, situations could vary between communities. The group said that under the statewide priority system, county medical societies will work out more detailed plans in centers of heaviest population. Dr. Charles H. Flynn of Clarin da, representing the Iowa State Medical Society noted that Iowa's policy follows the national policy, that it is voluntary and depends upon cooperation of physicians to use the flu shots where they will do the most good. "I'm sure they will use their judgment to see that it is given to the people who are designated by this committee," Dr. Flynn said. No action was taken toward closing schools or banning public meetings in case of epidemic Health authorities said such steps are of little help. Included in the priority group are elderly persons with heart and lung . ailments who would be en dangered by complications. Explains Program Dr. Edmund G. Zimmerer, state health commissioner, explained that the vaccination program is aimed at preventing Asian flu from causing serious health hazards and from disrupting essential services while large numbers of people are confined to bed. Hospitals already have been advised to vaccinate their staffs and employes, Loyd E. Coe of Des Moines, executive secretary of the Iowa Hospital Assn., reported. Other persons in health services with a normal run of problems to handle, also are included in the vaccine priority group as they would be needed to take care of large numbers of Asian flu cases. Aside from vaccination, Dr. Zimmerer called attention to the usual hygiene methods of avoiding communicable disease. They are staying away from people who have it and not return ing to work too soon after having the disease. The advisory committee recommended that local programs be set up to inform employers and individuals of these preventive measures. 1 v 1 After Board of Control Criticized— Censor Prison's Magazine and Broadcasts •50*S FLAPPER ....

The State Board of Control, which controls Iowa's penal institutions, decided Friday to establish a measure of control over what penitentiary prisoners say in print and on the air. The censorship applies to the nationally-known prison magazine, "Presidip" and the radio program, "Prison on the Hill." It was invoked following complaints from the Parole Board, whose members are Harold L, Martin, Hamburg,* the chairman; Arnold Utzig, Dubuque and Mrs. Virginia Bedell, Spirit Lake. The magazine, a monthly, has a Timet Herald, Carroll, Iowa Saturday, Sept. 14, 1957 circulation of 3,900 outside the penitentiary walls. George Callenius, member of the Board of Control, said he and his colleagues believe in freedom of the press and full information on public affairs but the Fort Madison situation is another matter. "It is not good taste for an inmate publication to be critical of other agencies of the state government," Callenius said. "We are going to have to have clearance on objectionable stuff that has been getting into the Presidio and going out on the air." The board action followed publl cation in the September issue of Presidio, of an article by Coeditor Jack V/mdermyn entitled Tarole Methods." It accused the Parold Board of failing in its obligation to society, the institution • and the individual prisoner. It said: "The board's principal aim has been announced as 'furnishing society maximum protection.' The best way to furnish this protection is to release men when they are ready and able to make a social readjustment—not when they are bitter. "One of the wrongs prepertated by the board is keeping prisoners in constant states of suspense and agitation. This leads to anxiety and has caused hours and days of grief and 'hard time' to the pris oner and his family." Vandermyn wrote that the Pa role Board has accused the maga sine of presenting a distorted view of parole policies and added: "We have time and again offered board, members space in the magazine without limitation, to answer or explain any question of policy. The board has consistently refused to take advantage of this forum...." Vandermyn criticized what he said was a board policy of making a lifer serve an additional term of at least six months as a "cooling off" period' after his sentence is commuted, making him eligible for parole. "I personally saw one man lose 90 pounds—and almost his sanity— during the six month waiting period," Vandermyn said.

Soviet Union Condemned On Hungary By MAX HARRELSON VN1TED NATIONS, N; Y. The U. N. General Assembly to/ day / brushed aside "neutralist" protests anjd voted a new condemnation of the Soviet Union for repressive measures against tha Hungarian people. e condemnation was a key provision of a 37-nation resolution approved in a special meeting of the 8l-nation Assembly. The vote early this morning came after four days of debate. The count was 60 in favor, 10 against and 10 abstaining. The only negative votes were cast by the nine Soviet, bloc countries and Yugoslavia. Those abstaining were Afghanistan, Cey-Ion, Egypt, Finland, India, Indonesia, Nepal, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Yemen. South Africa was absent. The result was a smashing vie- tory for the United States. The U. S. delegation, headed by Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge, had taken the lead in lining up support behind the resolution and in resisting attempts by several Asian nations to lone it down. The resolution placed the Assembly squarely behind the U.N.'i five-member Committee of Inquiry which had indicted th« Soviet Union and the Hungarian regime of Janos Kadar for mass deportations and indiscriminate slaughter in putting down last fall's uprising. It called on the Russians and the Kadar government to "desist" from the repressions. And it named the Assembly president, Prince Wan Waithayakon of Thailand, as special representative to carry on the U. N.'s efforts to aid the Hungarian people. Prince Wan promptly accepted the mandate. He acknowledged ha had no plan of action, but expressed confidence that something could be done. One suggestion was that he attempt to initiate direct negotiations in Moscow. The bitter Soviet opposition to the resolution, however, gave little encouragement for such a move. One favorable factor was the high esteem in which Prince Wan is held by the Russians as well as by the Western powers. In the debate, Soviet Delegate Arkady A. Sobolev said: "We regret that Prince Wan has been drawn into this shameful and noisy campaign against tha socialist countries." Later as the 11th General Assembly was preparing to adjourn, Sobolev praised Wan for the way he had presided over the meetings that began last falL Burma led a move to avoid a direct condemnation of the Russians. Several other Asian countries, including Indonesia, Ceylon and India, opposed the idea of a condemnation, but when the vote came only Burma and Iran voted for a proposal to substitute the word "deplores" for "condemns." The U. S. Constitution originally consisted of a preamble and seven articles when it was adopted in 1787. CONTROLS CHANNEL .
